You’re going to love the crochet Shine Spring Cowl, because it’s such a great lacy cowl for spring.
But back to the Shine Spring cowl, it’s made with beautiful hand dyed merino yarn that offers lots of warmth, while still being light weight & airy for spring.
Read about my inspiration & yarn I choose or scroll on down for the free pattern. Or simply grab the printable PDF pattern:
The yarn base for this yarn is called Airy & is a chained yarn, that makes anything you crochet with it light while still offering density.
What I’m most excited about is the fact that the yarn used is my own hand dyed yarn & it’s my first pattern using Joy of Motion Yarn.
The colors pictured is “Brevann” & “Dypt Hav”. Both names refers to sea & water, where “Brevann” means glacial water & “Dypt Hav” means deep sea!
THE PERFECT SPRING & SUMMER CROCHET PROJECT
The crochet Shine Spring Cowl is made with spring & summer in mind. It’s not your typical winter cowl.
What’s so great about it is the lace stitch pattern, which makes it perfect for warm weather. Next, it’s perfect when your shoulders are cold, just pull it down a little to cover them.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO CROCHET THAT?
How long it takes to crochet something varies depending on your skill & how fast you crochet. But that isn’t a helpful answer is it?
Well, I’ve developed a yarn calculator to help you get the answer to this question.
It will help you calculate exactly how much time you’ll spend crocheting a project.
All you need to know is how much yarn you will use on the project in either meters, yards or skeins. Then crochet your test square & time it.

Step 2: Insert hook into 2nd ch from hook, pull up a loop. Yo and pull through first loop (making “chain”). Yo and pull through both loops on hook.
Step 3: Insert hook into prev “chain” you made (It should look like you go through a resemblance of a “normal” st, with 2 strands of yarn), pull up a loop, yo and pull through first loop (making “chain”). Yo and pull through both loops on hook. Repeat step 3 until you’ve made enough stitches.
*2nd ch in step 1 makes 1 st, step 2 makes 1 st & every time step 3 is repeated you make 1 st.

Crocheted with the exact same steps as a normal half double crochet, however you’ll only insert the hook in the front loop of the stitch.

Row 1 (with CA): Ch 3 st (counts as 1st tr), sk 2 st, *tr 1 in the next 2 st, ch 4 st, tr 1 in the next 2 st, sk 4 st*, repeat from *to* until you have 3 st left, sk 2 st, tr 1 in last st, turn (=42 st).
Row 2 (with CA): Ch 5 st (first 3 ch counts as 1st tr), tr 1 in the next 2 st, sk 4 st, tr 1 in the next 2 st, *ch 4 st, tr 1 in the next 2 st, sk 4 st, tr 1 in the next 2 st*, repeat from *to* until you have 1 st left, ch 2 st, tr 1 in last st, turn (=42 st).
Row 3 (with CA): Ch 2 (counts av 1st hdc), hdc 1 in the next 2 st, *hdc 1 in the next 4 st, hdc 4 in ch-loop*, repeat from *to* until you have 3 st left, hdc 1 in the last 3 st, turn (=42 st).
